aka Formosa Teal
A Baikal Teal drake
This beautifully marked large Teal is native to eastern Asia. It is highly gragarious and forms large groups, often mixing with other species.
Males often call incessant;ly, with a deep chuckling "wot-wot-wot." The female voice is a low quack.
Baikal Teal nest on the ground, in high grasses near water. They lay 8-10 greenish-gray eggs. They are very hardy but have not bred that well in captivity.
